Snowman Family

Well it is here again,  my favorite time of the year.  My Goal this holiday season is to do Twelve holiday crafts, baking or gifts to share with you.

For my first one I decided we needed to have ourselves a little 2x4 snowman family.  This was fun for the kids as they got to help out with sanding and picking out their button colors. 

This was such a fun project to do.  Truly the hardest part was figuring out what size they should all be. 


I used 2x4's for most of the snowman and then 1x4 for a part of the hat.  I simply glued all the pieces together and waited patiently for them to dry.  


Once they were all dry each one got two coats of paint and a little sanding. Then it was time for the kiddies to head down to my paint drawer and figure out what color of buttons they all wanted.




  Aren't they fun

Hope you Enjoy

I love your 2x4 snowmen or snowpeople. These are great decorations not only for Christmas but for winter. Time to hunt through the wood pile :)

So adorable! I love that it's very simple and uses castoffs of wood pieces that we always have plenty of around here!
